With the beautiful season of weddings and bridal showers upon us comes the exciting task of registering for gifts! Get your partner in on the action and work together to select your wish list items which will build the foundation for your new home together. The key to a successful registry is to think with versatility in mind. What classic items will get you through the winter holiday season and outdoor summer barbecues? Which pieces will help to elevate special occasions beyond the ordinary?
To help answer these questions for you, we turned to Zola, an “all-in-one” registry website where you can not only register for gifts, but also experiences and honeymoon funds—perfect for any modern-day couple! We put together a bright and bold springtime tablescape using pieces that every couple should register for pre-wedding as the inspiration behind our shoot. Think: serving dishes, glasses, table linens, flatware and cake stands. Ten years from now, you’ll thank yourself for thinking ahead as you continue making the most of those pretty (and practical!) gifts. And if you change your mind about a gift –that’s okay. You can think it over with the Send It Later feature – perfect for while you’re on your honeymoon – and hold off on shipping, or exchange for something you want before it goes out the door with Zola’s Online Gift Swap.
Glitter Guide readers will receive $25 to spend on Zola when they set up their wedding registry on Zola. New registries must be started (but not necessarily published) between March 2, 2015 and June 2, 2015. Credits will be placed into the couple’s Zola account four weeks after a couple’s registry is published live.

By using everyday items from the “wedding registry essentials” we selected from Zola, we created a colorful tablescape using bold flowers and small accents, like DIY tassel napkin rings. The great thing about registering for neutral basics is that you can use them for everyday occasions and special events.
